Our work together is a key component of NCBA CLUSA’s continued service to the co-ops and diverse shareholders that comprise the North American purchasing sector.”
Since 1998, NPCC has been hosted by NCBA CLUSA and serves as the premier event for purchasing and shared services cooperatives in the U.S. Each session is designed to address top industry challenges, with the primary goal this year to provide attendees the tools to elevate connections within their co-ops, with members, industry peers and the customer. Through three workshops, six master classes and a keynote focused on B2B and eCommerce, attendees will learn how to grow their organization and engage their membership by embracing both technology and their unique co-op identity.
“LBMX is proud once again to be the premier sponsor of NCBA CLUSA’s 2016 Purchasing Cooperatives Conference,” said Greg Dinsdale, President and CEO of LBMX. “We are especially excited by this year’s conference since the theme is ‘Growth, Technology and the Co-op Advantage.’ For almost two decades, LBMX has been helping purchasing cooperatives and their members grow with our innovative technology solutions and consulting services. We look forward to continuing our partnership with NCBA CLUSA and are excited to catch up with old friends and make new ones in Miami.”
